Anyone that knows me well at all is familiar with my love of purses and shoes.  My shoes are more on the comfortable side (Birkenstocks and Hoka tennis shoes).  When I saw the sentiment in the Dress To Impress stamp set regarding buy the shoes, I was sold!  The humor along with a favorite thing was just perfect.

Does this sentiment speak to you like it did me?  I am a firm believer in life is short and to enjoy the things you love.  Those high heels would not be going home with me, but I can still admire the look of them.   One thing I do love is the Best Dressed Suite of products.

The Best Dressed 6X6 Designer Series Paper is as beautiful as all of Stampin’ Up!’s DSP.  One side is purses, shoes, perfume, and the other side is like this striped pattern.  I tend to go with the “opposite” sides of the DSP.  I pulled my color combination directly from the DSP.  It is one of my favorite ways to plan a card.

The thought of “Buy the shoes” made me think of a gift card for someone to purchase their choice of shoes.  So I went with my go to gift card holder.  Here is a view of the inside.



Oops on me for the Book gift card.  A tip I always give when making a gift card holder is to place the card as you are securing that layer.  It allows the extra space you need for a card so it is not a tight fit when you do add one.  I forgot to take this one out.  I promise that when the card is delivered it will have the appropriate card inside!  🙂

There are several gift card holders in my Gallery at the top of the page.  You can search for them and see different versions of this style.  It is very easy to do and holds a gift card perfectly.

I would also love to talk with you about the Ultimate Shopping Experience , the Starter Kit!  There is NO OBLIGATIONS to do anything beyond ordering the kit. You pay $99.00 + tax and receive $125.00 of your choice of products + any stamp set from any active catalog (the most expensive one is the Well Said set with a $45.00 price + the Mini Paper Cutter, a $26.50 value + the 6X6 DSP sampler pack (48 sheets of DSP) an $11.50 value + a Paper Pumpkin Kit with a value of $22.00 + FREE Shipping which is usually 10% of the order and would add another $23.00 value here.  This equals over $230.00 value + business supplies added in at no cost.  That is an awesome deal!!  And you never have to purchase another thing.  But while you are trying it out, and you have until the end of July before your trial period runs out, you are part of my Team!  As well as my upline.  We have Facebook groups to share our projects and assist each other.  I would love to talk with you about this opportunity.
